Flight delays happen. But the one experienced by Nigel Goring-Morris and his companion on their flight from Tel Aviv to Honolulu by way of Los Angeles was so long, and the initial compensation so inadequate, that I’m considering getting involved.
Maybe you can help me sort this one out.
Goring-Morris’ entire trip was booked through American Airlines, but his first leg was on American’s codeshare partner, British Airways. The first part of that flight, from Tel Aviv to London, went off without a hitch. But the connection to LA was delayed by 10 hours, and they missed their next connection to Honolulu.
We haven’t moved. Many of you have asked if we’ve relocated to Hawaii. Answer: No, but we kinda wish we had. Our last stop is in Waikiki, where we’re staying at the Holiday Inn Waikiki Beachcomber Resort. This is easily the most frenetic of the Holiday Inn Resorts we’ve checked into for our Away is Home family travel blog project — and I mean that in a good way. There’s a surfing museum here, a Jimmy Buffett’s (ah, you know we’re in the right place if there’s a Jimmy Buffett’s!) and a magic show.
The Beachcomber is right in the middle of everything in Waikiki. It’s directly across the street from an Apple store, a Ferrari store, and there’s a Macy’s on the first floor. I say again: a Macy’s. On the first floor. Read more “Waikiki — at last”
